Background[edit | edit source]
A black ops operator with a history of service across the world, including overseas deployments in Asia, Grey was a faithful right hand man of Secretary Thomas Eckhart and a loyal servant of the Enclave. After he made it to the Whitespring Congressional Bunker, he supported Eckhart in his elimination of all internal opposition, quashing dissent and assisting the Secretary in continuing the war against communism.
To do so, Grey was tasked with seeking the means to access the nuclear arsenal in Appalachia and inadvertently stumbled upon Fujiniya Intelligence Base. After eliminating the holdouts, he secured the facility and the bounty of research and data for the Enclave, enabling the Whitespring to manufacture a third generation of Stealth Boys based on Fujiniya research and unleash Liberators on the region. When Captain Jackson figured out the nature of the DEFCON monitoring system in Appalachia, Grey was the one who suggested false flag operations to President Thomas Eckhart in order to convince the system to raise the alert level, setting in motion the events that would lead to the scorchbeasts being unleashed on Appalachia.
His last assignment was the assassination of former Senator Sam Blackwell, ordered personally by the President. After several abductions from Harpers Ferry and investigating the Free States, Grey decided to follow the trail left behind by Quinn Carter, a Charleston Herald reporter who conducted Blackwell's last public interview. He tracked down the senator to his bunker, penetrated the outer security and dispatched the broken, grieving man with ease. However, he failed to account for the fact that bypassing and resetting the power released the lures... Which promptly attracted deathclaws that ensured that Grey would not live long enough to report success.

Grey appears only in Fallout 76.

- Fujiniya Intelligence Base terminals: "Remote team op documentation. Grey reporting.
We've established control of the facility, removing what appear to be the last holdouts of a Chinese research team. We attempted capture but they resisted and had to be put down. World's a better place with a few less Reds anyway.We've combed the location for intel and schematics, and while we hit on a few interesting leads (plus a couple dead ends), this Liberator bot system appears to be the most promising for what command wants. Relevant system documentation has been removed from the site and will be turned over to command.I'll be moving out with the intelligence shortly. A couple of men will be staying behind to try and make the location less attractive to the curious.End report."
- Whitespring Congressional Bunker terminals: "Tricking DEFCON
--- ACCESSING ARCHIVAL ENTRY.
////////////////////////////////////////////////This is the tricky one. We've got a Nuclear Keycard. One. If something goes wrong during the launch - fat finger, you sneeze, whatever - we're up shit's creek. And no one has been able to get a bead on a keycard convoy for a while now. But Jackson's been going through the documentation, and he believes he's parsed out what's happening.The specifics get pretty technical (the man ended up burning through three sticks of chalk trying to explain it to me) but the abridged version is that the system tasked with watching over the region doesn't think things are bad enough to warrant the convoys. This also explains why all the DEFCON signage in the bunker has been slipping downwards. But if we could trick the system into thinking there was some sort of invasion here, we could get its undivided attention, along with all the keycards we could ever need.Now, staging an invasion, well, we don't have the resources to do that ourselves and it sounds like spinning up an army of MODUS' butler bots won't make it bat an eyelash either. But Grey, sick puppy that he is, had an idea. If we could get the Chinese robot factory at Mama Dolce's back up and running, we might be able to make the system think the region's under attack. It might make things... dicey for folks outside the bunker, but it'd be a big step in getting us to launch.Now I'm sure you're thinking the same thing I am as I type this: is a group of belligerent spy bots running around going to be enough? And, if it's not, what is the President willing to resort to in order to guarantee the success of the launch? This has "slippery slope" written all over it.I wanted to bring this to you now, as I can guarantee Grey has already planted the idea in the President's head. I'm not thrilled with the prospect of putting Appalachia through hell just so we can finally win this war, but if we can do this in a managed way, this might be our best way forward.////////////////////////////////////////////////--- END ENTRY."
